The NVA got their clocks cleaned during Tet, but it was a political victory for them. Vietnam was my father's war, so I'm quite familiar with
Having saidthat, I am afraid that we might see the media "declare victory" in favor of the insurgents. In as much as I support the war, it hurts me
tos ee it being run so poorly. I'm not looking forward to seeing the MSM meddle in our foriegn policy by picking the winner and then going out of
theri way to legitimize their 'decision.'
A badly run war is just what it sounds like. It's a badly run war. In purest political terms, I see withdrawl as inevitable. If the Republicans
don't do it, they'll be spanked hard at the polls in '08. If the Dems are allowed to do it on their watch, Hillary will win a second term as
'reward' for doing what the majority claim to want. Her rewards will be doubled by a fawning MSM that won't be able to stop praising her name for
"such a wise and forward-thinking position."
The insurgents in Iraq have the NVA playbook in their back pocket. I fully expect them to raise 'heck' in February as we go to the polls. then,
they'll issue statements to the effect of "we can work with Hillary Clinton." that's gonna frost my cookies because the MSM will certain use it
as a tie-in to justify their support for her in the November '08 elections.
